Every year, for the last 3 years my family and I go to Catalina to celebrate my birthday. We love going to the island and walking, exploring and eating. It's always been a nice getaway. We decided to take my mom there during her last visit. She has never been and it was a double birthday celebration for me and... More

Noticed some mildew on the wood molding next to the shower. Otherwise the room was clean. Reserved a king size bed. When I got there was told that there were no more rooms available with King size beds. In such case, I should not have been allowed to book a king size bed to begin with. There were dirt patches...

The hotel is little far and high up from the main city but they have shuttle service for the downtown.Shuttle drivers were good. The room was good and had a microwave and fridge. Coffee machine and muffins in the lobby for guests... More

I booked this hotel through groupon and I think it was a great choice! We were lucky to get a renovated room! We got to the island early in the morning and they had their own shuttle pick us up. I would call the hotel to let them know what time you'll be in so they know to pick you... More

My family and I visited this hotel for a weekend stay. When we arrived, we had a terrible room. It was bad and outdated. The lights didn't work for the most part and there was grey spots on the blanket. In addition, there was rust in the toilet. However, we transferred rooms and it got a lot better. It was... More

Stayed one night @ Catalina Canyon Resort and Spa last week. We had a terrific price via Hotwire, which is why I took a chance for our family of four. The staff was excellent. The shuttle drivers were wonderful (too far to hoof it without the shuttle service). The location is great for being outside the main drag - with... More

Thank you for the positive review and the kind comments about the staff. I will look into the pool. I know we had to lower the temp with the water conservation, but I don't want it to cold. We are planning on renovating the restaurant after the first of the year. I hope you will come visit us again and... More

I stayed here last night with my husband and we liked it.The inside of the room looks brand new. I reserved on booking.com and THEN read the reviews on here, so I made sure I requested a renovated room. It was 103 dollars, I probably wouldn't pay more than that. The restaurant opens a bit late at 8am, so we... More

I'm so glad to liked your stay. The ping pong table is a huge success. It's great to see all the families out side playing. We just started up are renovations again. Once all the rooms are done everyone will have a newly renovated room. The restaurant has limited hours now that we are in the winter season. I'm sorry... More

We just returned from a one-night stay at the Catalina Canyon Resort. I took my husband for his birthday as he had never been to Catalina. We really enjoyed ourselves. I will say that I bought a Groupon so our room was like only $139 and worth every penny. When we arrived on the island, we were greeted by the... More

Thank you for such a great review. The renovated rooms are very modern and very comfortable. That two block hike can be tough, so I'm so glad the shuttle was able to meet your needs. I hope your able to bring your husband back again next year. Thanks you for staying with us and taking time to write a review. More

This hotel is very old and does not look like the pictures. Our room smelled of mold and I came home with bed bug bites on our faces and arms. The service was also lacking and bag service included an open door with everyone's luggage there. I could easily walk in and just take what I wanted.Also, the transportation from... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We have started a renovation to bring the hotel to a higher level. I had the hotel inspected by our pest control and he saw no signs of bed bugs. Thank you again for your review. More
